On October 22, members from CFSEU – Lethbridge and the Lethbridge Regional Police Service arrested Byron PAGE (35 years of age) and Charlene KANE (43 years of age) without incident in the 1800 Block of 3rd Avenue South, Lethbridge.  A CDSA Warrant was executed at a residence in the 900 block of 7 Street North, Lethbridge where PAGE and KANE reside.  Three females were found inside the residence, two females were minors and subsequently released into the care of adults.  A third female was arrested and identified.
